“If you are hungry the Yankee Boy is a good place to stop on 131 between Fife Lake and Kalkaska”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2012 via mobile

The place is what it is decor wise -- Northern Michigan eclectic. We stopped for breakfast. The food was excellent. Perfectly prepared and well presented. We challenged the kitchen with an off menu request for an omelette we did not know the ingredients for. Told them to wing it and the result was all that couldne hoped for. Really good. The service was good and all of the staff was very pleasant. This place is good enough that folks should want to make it a regular destination when coming up north. You probably won't be disappointed.
